The Civic Museum For The Prehistory Of Monte Cetona

The Civic Museum for the Prehistory of Monte Cetona is located in the sixteenth-century municipal palace and illustrates the main stages of the history of human population in the Cetonese territory. The prehistoric events of the district begins in the average Paleolithic, but an intense settlement occurs during the Bronze Age, especially in Belverde, on the eastern side of the mountain: this phase is a rich archaeological documentation that constitutes the main core of the museum .

The museum path, organized in educational form, exhibits the materials found with the recent research methods, also illustrating the landscape evolution of the Cetonese area based on geological and paleontological evidence.

The Archeyrom of Belverde, located not far from the homonymous archaeological area, is an educational path created to complete and integrate the visit to the museum and the park. The settings, structures and artifacts reproduced are inspired by the two phases of the prehistory better documented in this territory: a part of a village of the Bronze Age, with natural size huts and areas for craft activities were reconstructed, and a town in the average paleolithic cave. The two sectors are connected by an itinerary in the woods and along the rocky flounce overlooking the Belverde cavities from which you can enjoy a wide view of the Valdichiana.
